Proverbs 27:10; Proverbs 27:22; Proverbs 27:27 (GOD'S WORD Translation)
Do not abandon your friend or your father's friend. Do not go to a relative's home when you are in trouble. A neighbor living nearby is better than a relative far away.
If you crush a stubborn fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain, [even then] his stupidity will not leave him.
There will be enough goat milk to feed you, to feed your family, and to keep your servant girls alive.
